    Nonobstructive dysphagia is a common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease, and may be present in up to 45% of patients. To elucidate the mechanism of dysphagia, stationary and ambulatory motility studies were performed in 10 controls and 27 patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease....

    The manometric pattern of either diffuse esophageal spasm (DES), nutcracker esophagus (NE), or hypertensive lower esophageal sphincter (HLES) in the presence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is considered a secondary finding and treatment should be directed toward GERD. This study aims...

    INTRODUCTION: In esophageal achalasia, pneumatic dilations (PD) provide short-term and long-term remission rates of 60–90% and 40–50%, respectively. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term efficacy of repeated PD as long-term maintenance therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS:...

    Background: A significant proportion of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) present with atypical symptoms (extraesophageal reflux; EER). The effectiveness of surgical fundoplication in treating classical reflux symptoms is well documented, but the role of surgery in alleviating...

    A paraesophageal hernia was diagnosed in a 67-year-old female patient suffering from epigastric pain and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The patient underwent laparoscopy. Beside the paraesophageal hernia, a Morgagni hernia was also observed, with a significant part of the omentum herniated in...

    Background: Nocturnal reflux is important in the pathogenesis of esophagitis. The relationship between reflux and sleep is poorly understood, although data support both paradigms of nocturnal reflux causing arousal and nocturnal arousal allowing reflux. Furthermore, the effect of fundoplication...
